I don't seem to be getting access to a convenient brewery, so there may not be a Moonlite lager. If anyone here is a brewer and would like to collaborate on the project, contact me.

Scott- You would be the "Cheez wit" on the Buffet! We would love to have you and your lovely bride do a second honeymoon to Owensboro that weekend.

pcdiva- We make that run often (family in Brighton). I tend to prefer the I-69 route over I-75. I'll send the details for both, as once you get to Louisville they are the same route

1. I-94 west from Ann Arbor to I-69 south. Follow I-69 to I-465 in Indianapolis. Follow the 465 around the east side of Indy to I-65 south. Take I-65 south to the 6 milepost on the northern edge of Louisville's Indiana suburbs. That is I-265. Take the 265 to its connection with I-64(west). Take I-64 west to Exit 79-Ind 37 south. Follow the signs on Ind 37 and 237 to the Ohio River Bridge at Cannalton. Cross the river and climb the hill to the intersection with US 60. Go right (west) on US 60 to and thru Owensboro. On the west side of Owensboro enter the US 60 Bypass that encircles the town (as if you were going to go back to the east side.) Exit 2, just a short distance from where you enter the Bypass, is Parish Rd. Exit and turn left to cross the highway. The Moonlight is about 500 yards towards town from the interchange on the right side of Parish Road.

2. If you would rather do I-75, follow US 23 south out of Ann Arbor till it merges with I-75 near Toledo, Follow 75 south thru Dayton and Cincinnati into Kentucky. At the split about 20 miles south of Cincinnati, take I-71 to Louisville. In Louisville, follow the signs for I-64 west (St Louis) and then follow I-64 west into Indiana. Once safely across the river into Indiana follow the directions found in the above list to get you to Owensboro.

Ask questions if you have any. We do hope to meet you in Owensboro.If coming in earlier for some friday or Sunday activities let us know... we have nothing set up yet for those days...but I am sure there will be introdctory and farewell sessions at various Louisville Locations!

The Big Guy just quit his job so we are hoping to hang out in the Lower 48 longer than usually this year. The Glee Club Meeting sounds fantastic, especially if Bushie is collaborating on the libations! Are we invited? Or do we just have to crash the party?

It's a pretty exclusive gathering, Lisa, but the doorman is susceptible to bribery.

Lisa, I sincerely hope you and the Zman will be able to attend. I would enjoy nothing more that to meet the both of you.

I am sorry that demestic partner has quit his job but that allows ou some freedom to cruise.

I again express my thoughts on hoping you can be there.

Well, I will submit my Friday and Monday time off request when I get back to work, so COUNT ME IN!!!! Thanks for the directions, Al. I plan to leave Friday morning from Ann Arbor so I should be there for any evening activities. Then the big get together on Saturday, fun and games on Sunday, and home on Monday. (gotta use those vacation days somehow!) My contribution to the drawing will be baked goods from Zingerman's.

I can hardly wait!

Outstanding News!! Alice, We look forward to meeting you and Sharing Moonlite BBQ chin dripping that weekend!
We will firm up the Friday evening happenings etc when the time gets closer, but I would think about staying Friday evening in the Louisville area. I would imagine a local dinner will be on the agenda. Travel time Ann Arbor to Louisville 6.5-8 hours depending on weather conditions

If anybody is coming from the west, I will be spending Friday in Evansville, and would be happy to show anyone my favorite sights there, prior to heading over to Owensboro Saturday morning.

It appears that IWANAGO from Tennesee will be flying into the the Louisville airport. If she does, I will pick her up and hope to have a dinner with the Mayor at the hotel that does the Louisville special. We will then head over to Owensboro for the BBQ deal. That sounds like a real special deal to me.

!. It's because this gettogether has a MAYOR on board, and rank has its privileges.

2. I dont give a damn where these gettogether items are posted, so long as they are posted.

3. The Crabfest and Hot Dog tours I've attended were a hellofalotof fun, so let's not be too critical of those promoting them.

4. Why cant the great Phoobahs who run this show create a forum solely for
gettogethers: like, "Meetups, past, present, future"?

5. And I'm hoping to attend the Owensboro affair and meet up with that bunch of "Good Ole Boys" and "Neanderthals" who will be there sippin a bit of Bourbon and dowing enormous portions of BBQ Mutton.

Cheers, John

A seperate forum for get togethers would be best, that way no one will miss the postings which otherwise get buried.

Everybody can allways find something wrong with something. Nothing wrong was itended. It was intended for people who had interest. If for some reason this offended some of you, I am sorry. I think those who attend will be very happy.

No, the Chain is still vehemently around in the Mid Atlantic and apparently in Cincinnati too.

Frank, the odds are heavily in the favor of NO SNOW. Typical Temps are in the upper 30's and 40's during the day and a bit colder at night. The worst of the cold is gone by that point. We could get snow, but I would venture to guess that there is about an 8 out 10 chances that the ground will be bare and the worst we could expect would be some cold rain.

Sadly it looks like I may not be able to attend this gala roadfood event. One of my friends here in Rhode Island is turning the big 4-0 the week of Presidents day weekend and it appears that we are going to be having the Party that weekend. Since it's a milestone I really can't miss it, I know what he will be going through since I went through the same traumatic experience of turning 40 last year.

Sorry to hear that W J We would love to have shared both the Bourbon and BBQ. Perhaps later this year at the Crabfest or another of the gatherings.

A Moderator's Comment--1/4/06

I think I need to point out a couple of things to some folks regarding the movement of threads.
This thread had disappeared from the front page two weeks ago (12/20) Mr Jackson decided to drag it up to the front to demand that it be moved since it's hibernation on the BBQ Thread was offending his sense of justice (1/3).
Another Poster decided to vent his frustration at the 'unfairness' of the cold cruel world by a Moderator who had no knowledge of what was moved or why. The fact is that Both of the active Moderators (actually all 3 of us) were unaware of the move. Add to that a supporting vote from someone who likes to nod his head and say Amen to the original complaint that a dead thread should be searched out among the thousands of threads that are stored on this site...and moved immediately because it is an offense to his sense of decorum.
Well, Folks. There just ain't No Justice in the world today. We hope that any and all of you who choose to gather for what have been some great food-meetings in various locations will continue to do so. I was a bit curious why someone who was not participating in either of the food-meetings under examination here was the one who decided to drag the BBQ thread out of history to point out the injustice of the administration. But perhaps that will go unanswered as one of those 'Urban Legends' that will wander the net to be posted over the years.

Now if the Administration (not the Moderators..."It's No My Job!!") decide to move something ok.. It is done. If not, guess what. The Weinie trip will be fun, The BBQ Sheep will be fun, and the World will continue on it's downward slide...be it with some full-tummies.
The Hijacking posts on page 5 will be deleted by the Moderator--ME tomorrow, if the authors don't have the manners to do it themselves.

I've been wondering what has given Wanderer that haunted look. Now I know; it was that 40th thing. Well, get over it WJ, youv'e got to look forward to the 50th, 60th and 70th - all of which I've survived with equanimity and poise.

I well remember my 40th. We all got very drunk and made complete asses of ourselves - not so on the occasion of the subsequent decades.

Cheers, John

John
Is the 70th really that bad...Or do you remember it?
40 for me passed almost unnoticed...50 was one that drew a lot of attention. 60 is forgotten in the fog...but I am thinking that 70 (6.5 years away) will be a tough one. I hope to celebrate it at the Moonlite BBQ with a bunch of my Roadfood Friends!
